I can't say very much to this layout suggestion. André (and Gernot) and
me discussed this layout before. :-) And I like it.

I would only suggest a change of the visited links color.

-1 for the border.

No, I don't like such pages (with much text) telling me, how much space
I have to use. I'm changing the browser width rather than having a fixed
width and unused space. But to assist both different reading practices
we could support two style sheets, one default and one alternative.
Browser like Mozilla allow switching between different variants....

I agree.
